TAM Docents: Labels for Event Space & Speaking Parts Sign-up

Hello Docents-

Thanks to all of you who attended today's walk-through of Oasis and Speaking Parts and to those who went up to Seattle for the Macaulay lecture. For those who missed Macaulay, there will be a podcast available here: It is not up yet (I just checked) but it was announced before the lecture so be sure to keep an eye out.


Attached you will find labels for the current Event Space exhibition.


Below you will see the current sign-ups for the Speaking Parts Presentations on Monday, November 17 from 10:30 – 12:30 pm.

*The follow-up, required training for Speaking Parts will involve peer teaching and tour practicing.  Each of you is to select two works from just one of the three sections of the exhibition and present how the two works relate to each other. Your presentation should not exceed five minutes (we'll be timing) and should include at least one or two key points about the artists, the intent of each work, and how together they strengthen the museum's overall collection.  Please contact me with your selections so that we can ensure good coverage of the exhibition. You should have your name next to 2 artists (please double check). The artists in red still need someone to cover them.
